Nairobi - Just over 1,700 candidates cheated in the 2014 KCPE, it has been revealed.

Education Cabinet Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi announced Monday that the 1,702 candidates cheated and will not get their results in the just released results.

He added that there was still a major problem with cheating that needed to be dealt with to ensure the exams are free and fair.

" 1,702 candidates cheated and that is a problem that really needs to be solved," he said of the predicament.

" Languages English and Kiswahili were the most affected," Kaimenyi said, stating that  he would ensure the persons in-charge of the relevant subjects work on ways of ensuring that cheating does not occur as much as it has again.

Nyandarua, Nyeri, Kirinyaga, Machakos, Trans Nzoia, Laikipia, Taita Taveta, Tana River, Lamu, Bungoma, Vihiga, Siaya, and Garissa counties were not affected by cheating.

Kaimenyi also said that teachers founds colluding to help students cheat would be charged.

" We urge teachers to stay as far away as possible from this menace. We will prosecute without fear, anyone found taking part in the vice, he added.

Cheating has been a part of the exams system in Kenya for years, with the government previously stating that it will do its utmost to ensure the vice disappears completely.
